AT&T Wants Device Subsidies to Be As Low As Possible

Re: Why not end subsidies?
Was that the intent?
If you don't want a subsidy, pay full retail.
At that point you have no cotract and as far as I know, most carriers will unlock a customer owned device if the account is current.
Your TV accepts possibly several types of imputs, but cell phones are small and the attempt to keep them small precludes the 'universal phone' that will run on any network.
So, the solution you are putting forth will eliminate the economically substandard from cellular service and require customers to plunk down $300 - $900 and the universal device will be the size of a bag phone so it will work on any network.
